Excitement is in the air. What looked like a distant prospect is now just 40 days away as we count down to the Be More Race on June 9th.
The 2018 edition has taken off to a flying start with 10 km city races underway. Blantyre was first, followed by Mzuzu. Lilongwe is next on 12th May 2018.
The city races aim to prepare runners ahead of the main heat on 9th June 2018. They also act as a build-up to the main race and should drum up public support through social media.
So where does that leave you and I? I hope we have been making progressive preparations in all areas that matter. Remember to enjoy the day, one will need to build endurance, improved breathing, and hopefully, became lighter on the feet.
If your progress is not where it should be, don’t lose heart since there is still some time to catch up on the effort. However, should it be clear to you that this will not be possible, then consider the different options on the table.
The main event will be an odd 21 km, and there will be another one for 10 km, and lastly, there will be a fun run for 5 km. Plan to attend, and aim to participate in any of the three. But what if all these are still tough for you? Well, don’t despair. You can still turn up and take a walk for as far as you can go. It will inspire you to love outdoors and do something about your physical fitness.
Remember, this race is about family, social inclusion and setting personal records. So mark up your calendar and keep 9th June 2018 free.
See you on the training track.
